Germantown is renowned for its horse shows, including a charity event that draws visitors from across the region every June. The famed Tennessee Shakespeare Co. is also located here, with modernized versions of the Bard’s plays and other dramatic classics taking place in gardens and historic sites, as well as on the conventional stage. Well-regarded local eateries offer plenty to nosh on before or after the theater, including soul food, Italian and new American cuisine.

Scenes from Germantown
Vintage Shoney's coloring book (which pre-dates the existence of the Southaven Shoney's location)That tweed jacket was purchased, but I decided to pass on this vintage Kraco CD radio (and it's a bit surprising that the word 'Kraco' was in my phone's spell check)!Germantown Kroger, Seafood & Meat counterBlooms (didn't get a really good overview shot of floral, but from this alone hopefully it can be seen that faux stone looks at least a little better than that Artisan faux brick)!OK, here's a section of plain white wall, which didn't bother me as much as I thought it might- though I believe creamer (down at the far end) was the product that had already been moved post-remodel, grrr...!Frozen Foods (where to the right one can catch a glimpse of the different - improved if you ask me - overhead Artisan pharmacy treatment)Germantown proud, at the Farmington Blvd. Germantown KrogerChoice cuts along the back wall (The Meat & Seafood counter, and nearby blue wall, are some of the exceptions to the overall light/muted colors of Artisan here in the Germantown Kroger)It IS a plain white wall, but was spiced up a bit by nice local flair. However, once it's decided cheese should be moved somewhere else, the product identifier best be moving along with it! (This oversight has already happened in another part of dairy...)Really (really) like the upper wall treatment above the front windows!Thought I'd do something a bit different, and share a few estate sale finds, starting with this JCPenney cassette recorder. I didn't purchase any of the things I got photos of, but ......Mrs. L_Dawg purchased a Time Magazine branded mini clock radio (which she had to work on a bit to get operational), and I got a small set of 20 lb. weights to do arm curls with - all for about $15 total :PEven more interesting (to me) than the Realistic/Radio Shack & Penneys-branded items was this Sony Betamax VCR - couldn't resist a sarcastic photo note at the bottom left of the item! (And oh yeah, think it was this sale where I got a Billy Joel CD also).Yep, it's the Germantown Kroger (again). And wow, it dawns on me that we almost always enter a store on it's left side for some reason...even one that we visit somewhat infrequently.What a difference two years (give or take) makes
